7:44 am
gates. you see the fog was quite an inland presentation here this morning as it is extending into the inland valley, which means it will be slow to go this afternoon. we will look for more sunshine across the region are you again, it's going to be a slow creep back to the beach by midday. and in the foggy while clouds will probably linger. we can expect temperatures across the interior much like yesterday as we look for partly cloudy skies becoming clear this afternoon. continued to mild temperatures. fogg giving away to afternoon sunshine and mostly foggy at the beach. probably all day long from the looks of things. once again, this will continue. we do have a cooler air mass headed our way for tomorrow and through the of the week. look for that file back to thicken up here the next couple of days and linger a little longer through the day here. until the end of the week when we should see this pattern reversed and a little more sunshine and
7:45 am
warmer temperatures moved into the. for the next several days, we look for slow clearing to the fog bank here through the afternoon hours to bring this partial afternoon clearing. lots of sunshine there. temperatures in the mid-to low '90s, even down into the triple digit as you head into the san joaquin valley. we will hang on some -- hang onto some fog. of course, it is another week of the california state fair where it will be 92 today, sunny and warm in the sacramento valley. as we look for mid-80s to prevail for the warmer spots, back into the east bay hills, mid-to low 70s, mid-to low 60s on the peninsula, and back to the beach as well fall of diminishing spare. as cooling trend continues into the beginning of the week of four we finally see a change in this pattern. we expect a return to near normal temperatures by the end of the week. that will put us back in the mid-to low '90s by next weekend.
7:46 am
not a heat wave but a little warm up back to normal. >> okay. we didn't get your answer on the feast for the beast. >> sure, i would go in there. no problem. as long as there is no snakes. >> thanks, jen. we will check in a little bit later. don't ask don't tell is history in less than 60 days. president obama signed a notice to congress on friday effectively ending the ban on gays and lesbians serving openly. a sacramento man was one of several servicemembers discharged from the navy under the policy. it happened back in 2007. >> it is very hard to think of. the men and women who are not with us, it would be the fulfillment of my life to earn the uniform of an officer. >> that was joe toubro show you heard from. he is now hoping to become a beret corps officer -- become a marine corps officer.

what can we expect? elizabeth home and joining us live for more on that. >> thanks for being here this morning. >> glad to join you. >> is this position going to be immediate, gradual? and will people be allowed to come back into the military if they were either rejected or opted out? say that the last question is the least clear about who will be able to be readmitted if they were seeking to join. in 60 days for the first time we have an actual date for the end of the policy and the law that discriminated. that's a great thing for gay and lesbian service members. so we know onto territory for certification of the president signed last week will go into effect. what that means for servicemembers, i'd say it has been a gradual transition already. the reason is this has been changing for some time. right now even the ninth circuit has issued a restriction that prevents the military from investigating and discharging people even though the policy is still in effect. i think the transition has been agile, although the actual date
7:48 am
is a timber 20th. >> you were in the air force. >> i was. >> my question is, what was your experience? what effect do you think this they will have -- what effect you think this will have on the military culture? >> i was in the air force. i left under my own terms, although i left the service because i came out. i wanted to come out and be honest about who i was rated for many other servicemembers, the disclosures about whether they are gay and when people might think they are gay or lesbian, they don't come as a result of their own decision. it comes from somebody else. >> i want to hear a little bit about that. you were in the military for years and you were coming out at that point. what was that like emotionally for you? >> it's hard. i think -- my process of tying -- my process of coming out isn't tied to the military. we don't expect all sorts of people to suddenly march and state openly that they are gay or lesbian, because those decisions are
7:49 am
personal. the pressures are about their family, faith, friends, community. we will have a big legal change. that will certainly make a difference here. >> what other countries have this policy? >> well, we have very bad company really. no western countries have this sort of ban on open service by gays and was he and any longer. all of our sister nations who have joined the coalition forces have ended their bans on gay and lesbian service numbers. >> you were talking about repealing don't ask don't tell. there was a lot of talk with some of the higher up in the military about how this could affect the inner workings of the military. how is that even determined? are they talking to the guys on the ground? >> yes, yes. they did quite an extensive study. president carter over to group of some 68 people who worked for nine months and contracted with outside agencies to serve a 400,000 service members, have focus groups with
7:50 am
140 different groups around the country to make sure this wouldn't affect military readiness. so that part of the equation has been well taken care of. >> every other european country has already ended the ban. what effect does it have on their military? >> a collective shrug. really not much effect at all. military service is an arduous, difficult task for the servicemembers around the world. whether or not a service member is gay or lesbian has very little affect on how the servicemembers perform in most difficult situations. >> and one other question is, we are having the gay marriage debate in the united states. we have domestic partners. what will the status he is gay couples the military? >> so hard to tell. there is a definite collision, as your comment suggests. for instance, same-sex couples in the military won't be able to

the hornet is actually the home to the largest collection of artifacts on the west coast. oakland zoo visitors said the animals are part of the and no fees for the bees. the first 250 guest walks inside the elephant enclosure and got to set up the spread before the hungry herd entered. 10 minutes now after 8:00. jim bernard has her weather forecast. pretty nice day out there yesterday. a little more today? >> not bad. low clouds will, once again clear out by mid-day. it leaves us with some afternoon sunshine. for most locations, maybe not at the beach, but the rest of us see some sun. temperatures will be close to where they were yesterday. looking out across the tri- valley, we see the edge of the cloud deck moving back to the west at this hour. that will continue. there is still plenty of clouds that will clear. it will be a slow burn off today. again, we will look for afternoon sometime.
8:11 am
taking a look at a lot of visible satellite image right now, that fog bank extends quite a ways inland. it will be slow to go here. we look forward to a retreat back to the beach, but i don't think it clears the beach lined leaving us with temperatures at the coast in the mid-to low 60s. maybe even a few opera 50s out there in the foggy or locations here. at bayside, we will see a stay into the mid-to low 70s. out across the interior, it looks like mid-80s to low '80s will prevail on the partly cloudy conditions this morning. as i mentioned, classic summer pattern for the bay. a subtle fluctuation in our onshore versus offshore flow. we are looking at cooler air headed our way for tomorrow, which will hang in here probably through midweek before we look for a one-off into next weekend. so with a low cloud deck in the coastal air-conditioning working its magic, we are looking for any -- we are not looking for any heat
8:12 am
waves here, unlike the west of the country which has been faltering. as we see the low cloud dreck gradually shrink, we can expect sunny conditions with temperatures very close to where we were yesterday. it's still below normal for this time of year. we will find normal to choose the central valley. even triple digits in the san joaquin valley. sunny over the marlins as a springtime snow melt continues. still some snow in the high country but not at the state fair where it will be sunny and warm in sacramento. for us across the interior, we look for mid-to low '80s today great east bay, mid-to low 70s. on the peninsula, mid-60s with 60s expected at the beach. we will continue with this gradual cooling here into the beginning of the week which will hold until midweek, and we should see the pattern change with a little more sunshine and warmer temperatures back to near normal levels by next
8:13 am
weekend. you've got to love this air conditioner while it continues to work here as we are quite cool for this time of year. compared to what is happening elsewhere, that's a good thing. >> certainly. much appreciated. >> california assembly members considering a bill is fired by caylee anthony that would punish adults who fail to quickly report a child's disappearance or death. >> or are still her bills pending in at least 17 other states. assemblyman and co-author of 801432, bobble cost he joins us. good morning from fremont. first of all, this bill, it is certainly on a lot of national attention. is this something that's needed, or are we reacting to the latest news that's going out? >> i think people were shocked or didn't understand that somebody could -- a parent could not report a crime that of china -- that a
8:14 am
child died from a crime being committed and that's not reported. they just think that they should have to report and have the obligation as a guardian to report the death of a child. so that's the key to it. also, it punishes the periods. >> is that something you think would sway somebody from not reporting. obviously, there's quite a situation if they have a missing child or a child is passed away. but it went to be sitting there thinking about, this law just passed, i'm going to get in trouble if i don't report it. would that even be an issue? >> r chavez legislators are to set some standards. we set all kinds of standards of how we want people to react. hopefully, somebody will wake up within a 24 hours or 48 hours. >> i want to pull this back to still little bit. there isn't a law already on the books that says if there is a death that you don't immediately have to report it? what does it stand at right
8:15 am
now? it seems like that's common sense. >> and that's what i think. it's a commonsense report. right now you don't have any duty. we talk about duties that people have. it is no duty to report the death of a child. it's not a crime. a child is dead, you don't have to tell anybody. if casey anthony was here in california, one days, two days, three days, it doesn't have to be reported. even if you are suspicious. so it is one of these holes that occurred. i didn't write the laws before i got there in sacramento. that's just what it is. i was also surprised. and that is what has prompted me and holly mitchell to introduce a legislation to say that's got to be against the law for people to do nothing or you. >> is there any allowance for mental elements? >> the old yes. -- oh, yes. >> is amazing that something like that could happen and you wouldn't be duty bound to report it. but the missing part of it, now
8:16 am
if a child goes missing, sometimes people have custody situations or they think there is someone else. could someone be charged when, in fact, someone was at their sister's house and they work? cmac i don't think so. the misdemeanor is that if you knowingly know that the child has disappeared -- and we are going to have hearings on the bill. that's part of the legislative process. we don't want people -- we understand in modern society, you think your 13-year-old is at your axis house and they may be over at your odds. kids stay over another friends house when they are in 8th grade. we'll want to criminalize that, but if we think there is a crime that may have been committed, that's the key. you knowingly think that a crime is being committed, then you've got to call authorities because we know the authorities talk about cold cases. that first 48 hours, they can hopefully find a child. >> we want to switch gears and talk about the new plan.
